Orders of the Day — Vote 2. Board of Trade (Assistance to Industry and Trading Services) (14 Mar 1960)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: May I correct the right hon. Gentleman on that point? I think that the right hon. Gentleman is confused between the Mutual Aid Act of 1948, and the arrangements, on which my noble Friend has based his statement, and which I mentioned in my own speech, which arise out of the arrangement to expend the counterpart fund derived from United States economic aid under Section 9 (c) of the Mutual...

Orders of the Day — Vote 2. Board of Trade (Assistance to Industry and Trading Services) (14 Mar 1960)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: I am only correcting the statement of the right hon. Member for Huyton (Mr. H. Wilson) that my noble Friend was in error. I am merely pointing out that the Benton and Moody Amendment starts off by saying: It is hereby declared to be the policy of the Congress that this Act shall be administered in such a way as (1) to eliminate the barriers to, and provide the incentives for, a steadily...

Orders of the Day — European Free Trade Association Bill: New Clause. — (Dumping and Subsidies.) (22 Feb 1960)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: I do not share the enthusiasm of the hon. Gentleman the Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Mr. Rhodes) for this Clause, but I share his doubts about the antidumping legislation. May I plead with the Minister to give some undertaking that at the meetings of the countries which, I understand, take place from time to time it could be proposed to our partners in the Seven to have the same sort of...

Orders of the Day — European Free Trade Association Bill: New Clause. — (Dumping and Subsidies.) (22 Feb 1960)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: I, too, want to welcome the Third Reading of the Bill, but I also want to make it clear that there are certain points about which I and, I think, many people in the North, particularly those in towns engaged in the textile trade, feel most unhappy. I think that I should be out of order on Third Reading to refer in any greater detail to my fears about the deflection of trade contained in some...

Orders of the Day — Ukrainians, Great Britain (16 Feb 1960)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: I do not want to repeat the arguments of my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Nottingham, Central (Lieut.-Colonel Cordeaux) and the hon. Member for Rochdale (Mr. McCann). The only difference between us on this issue is that east of the Pennines Ukrainians seem to integrate fairly well, because not long ago I came across a family in which two sisters had married, one an Italian and one a...

Orders of the Day — Ukrainians, Great Britain (16 Feb 1960)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: That is possibly a tribute to the virility of the Ukrainians. There is no doubt that the Ukrainians are part of a nation, even if we do not recognise their independence as a State. In this context, it is important to remember that by these regulations we are removing not only their independence—that has been done by others— but their nationhood, and that is something about which they...

Orders of the Day — Ukrainians, Great Britain (16 Feb 1960)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: I can assure the hon. Member that if it were so Anglo-Russian amity would have been bought at the expense of a family rift.

Orders of the Day — European Free Trade Association Bill (15 Feb 1960)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: I hope that the hon. Member for Sheffield, Attercliffe (Mr. J. Hynd) will forgive me if I do not follow him down the well-trodden path of ideological and historical speculation that he took us along today, as he has so often done before. It is true that this is a minor Bill of a technical nature implementing the Convention, but it is a Measure of great importance to many parts of British...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Ukrainians (Registration) (28 Jan 1960)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: I understand that the main object is to achieve consistency of record. In that case, would my hon. and learned Friend consider amending the procedure so that it achieves that object without causing so much distress to a lot of people? Will he consider registering these people as Ukrainians, with the letter "G", "P", or "R" following, to designate that they are German, Polish and Russian...

European Free Trade Association (14 Dec 1959)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: The one thing on which we all seem to agree, even the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Mr. Rhodes), is that our club is not as good as the other one. There seems, however, to be some doubt as to which club hon. Members opposite —and indeed, some hon Members on this side of the House—want us to join. I think that the most important thing is not to miss this opportunity. We have missed...

Underdeveloped Areas (20 Jul 1959)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: I am afraid that I cannot share the view of the hon. Member for East Ham, South (Mr. Oram) that a Labour Government would be so successful economically as it was politically, or that the same sort of "success" would be desirable either for this country or for the underdeveloped countres. I hope the hon. Gentleman will forgive me for not following him in the intricacies of his argument, as I...

Printing Industry (Dispute) (6 Jul 1959)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: May I ask the hon. Member for more details? When he deals with overtime is he referring to case-room work or to machine-room work or to both?

Printing Industry (Dispute) (6 Jul 1959)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: The hon. Member referred to the concentration required. Surely he cannot say that it requires as much concentration to do a long run on a machine as it does to set up the matter before it is run off?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Parents and Guardians (Agreements) (2 Jul 1959)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: asked the Minister of Education whether, in view of the fact that some local authorities operate agreements between the parents or guardians of children attending secondary schools after having reached the statutory school-leaving age by which provision is made for the payment by such parents or guardians of an agreed sum in the event of the pupil ceasing to attend such schools before the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Parents and Guardians (Agreements) (2 Jul 1959)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: Since the educational authorities obtained, or failed to obtain, authority for these agreements—it was all done in a somewhat haphazard manner—would my hon. Friend at least try to ensure that those local authorities that do have agreements administer them consistently as between one and another?

Orders of the Day — LANCASTER CORPORATION BILL [Lords] (By Order) (7 May 1959)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: It is fairly obvious to the House that my support for my hon. Friend the Member for Lancaster (Sir F. Maclean) and my opposition to my hon. Friend the Member for Morecambe and Lonsdale (Mr. de Ferranti) is not entirely disinterested, any more than is the support which the hon. Member for Sowerby (Mr. Houghton) has given to the Motion. I confess that I have not studied the Bill with the same...

Orders of the Day — HALIFAX CORPORATION BILL [Lords] (By Order) (7 May 1959)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: In rising to ask the House to reject the Motion and to allow the Bill to go complete to the Select Committee, I must express my great admiration for the fervour and wit with which the hon. Gentleman the Member for Sowerby (Mr. Houghton) has put his points. I wish I could extend that admiration to his accuracy on matters of fact. There was the greatest distortion of the preliminaries that I...

Orders of the Day — HALIFAX CORPORATION BILL [Lords] (By Order) (7 May 1959)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: That is not what I understood and, if anything, it reinforces the point that these matters can be better dealt with by counsel producing evidence and records before a Committee. One other point on the matter of accuracy is that the hon. Gentleman said that we should recommend that the Committee should not consider Parts II, III and IV on the ground that these concern the take-over by Halifax...

Orders of the Day — HALIFAX CORPORATION BILL [Lords] (By Order) (7 May 1959)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: Despite the contentions from the benches below, I have not yet mentioned the word "drip". One advantage of the Bill which I do not want to over-stress is that of continuity. The hon. Member taunted us for believing that a supply going on for one hundred years was efficient. Certainly, it can be argued that an authority which has been supplying water for one hundred years must, by definition,...

Orders of the Day — HALIFAX CORPORATION BILL [Lords] (By Order) (7 May 1959)

Mr Maurice Macmillan: May I read out a letter, a copy of which I have here, written by the town clerk of Todmorden to the town clerk of Halifax. It states: I now write to formally confirm that at their last meeting the council resolved: 'That Todmorden accept the terms offered by Halifax Corporation and agree to a merger of the Todmorden Undertaking with that of Halifax.' I think that that it is a quite definite...
